The beautiful brides-to-be

Two of my very lovely friends, Ellie and Charlotte are soon to
be blushing brides, and I had the pleasure of crafting the
accessories for their big days. Ellie is having her hair in a wee
bouffant at the front, and the tiara above will be sitting
elegantly on top of her pretty little head.

Ellie also commissioned me to make her bridesmaids' necklaces
and bracelets. She choose these v sparkly love hearts herself.

All of this was packaged up, in With Love From Pearl's signature
brown paper bag and ivory tiara box.

Charlotte went for a mixture of modern and vintage pieces
combined with Swarovski crystals and pearls on a band
that was covered with ivory ribbon, to make a beautiful
asymmetrical headband for a very beautiful lady.

Each headdress that is hand made, with love from Pearl comes
with a hand-written card to the bride-to-be to explain how it has
been made, so that they can tell their grandchildren all about it
in a good few years to come.

This is the necklace and earrings that I made for Charlotte
to compliment her headband. My favourite part is the pretty
vintage clasp on the necklace. The necklace looks stunning
on Charlotte. I can't wait to be a guest at both weddings.

Thank you to Charlotte and Ellie for
being Pearl's very first customers.

Gorgeous wedding pics of the big days to follow...

The best vintage sale I've been to in MK yet...

Today I met so many lovely people at the Vintage Sale in
Newport Pagnell, one of those lovely people was Alexa from
Vintage Splendour, if you love all things vintage and haven't
already visited her website, then you are missing out, all of
those gorgeous goodies in the pic above are hers. Check out:

I had some of my Beadoir Jewellery and wedding headbands
on display today, they were all squeezed on to a teeny, tiny table.

There was such a great mix of stalls, the day much exceeded my
expectations. It was a proper vintage sale, here in Milton Keynes.
I'm not sure if too many of you knew about it, but if you missed
out, don't fret, Sian, the organiser is planning on doing
another in August before she embarks on her trek in
China to raise more money. So, you should all come to
that one. It is well worth it, there was tons of home ware and
very unusual accessories and clothing, and all at reasonable prices too.

This is Laura's stall, she had a such a cool mix of retro stuff, she's
clearly got a great eye for picking out quirky items. Can you spot the
vintage Max Factor bath cubes with the stunning typography on the box?
Laura currently sells her stuff on eBay, but I've recommended Folksy 
to her, so I'll let you know if I find out she's opened up a shop.

Vintage Sale

Tomorrow I'll be at a Vintage Sale in Newport Pagnell, Bucks.
It starts at 9am and finishes at 2pm, so get up bright and early
and come and see us. There will be lovely home wares, clothing
and of course my vintage accessories and bridal headbands.

It's run by Sian who is raising money for Parkinson's UK, not
only is she doing this, but she is also walking part of The Great Wall
of China. I wish her all the best. Come along tomorrow and offer
your support and pick up something beautiful at the same time.

It's in The Square

My stall at It's in The Square
I had a great day at the parade in Wolverton and made lots
of sales. I had a couple of my With Love From Pearl headbands
on display alongside my jewellery that I also make
please visit to see my collection.


I had a wedding photo of my Mum and Dad on display.

Here are some of the vintage pieces of jewellery that
I sell at Beadoir Jewellery.

I started off making earrings when I was eleven years old,
since then I've discovered how to make everything and anything.

My big crafty weekend

Saturday 3 & 4 July

This afternoon I am holding a stall at It's in The Square in Wolverton. There is a parade at 3:30 today and there will be music, arts and crafts going on all afternoon.

Tomorrow afternoon I will be at Campbell Park at the MK4U festival. Both are free to enter and will be lots of fun, I am sure. Hope to see you there.
